"Very tasty. I used ground turkey and substituted onion powder for the green onions. I only added about half the can of olives. I did add the lemon pepper to taste and some garlic salt. The sauce and feta cheese really made this dish!"
"Soo good! I omited and substituted some stuff cause of preference (onion powder instead of onions), no olives or lettuce. And I really dislike low fat mayo, I used regular. But everything else was the same. It was incredibly easy to make and just amazing! The sauce is to die for! The lemon pepper really gives it a boost! I salted the spinach as well, but just barely. Try this recipe!"
"This is now a favorite in our house! I omit the lettuce because it doesnt really add anything, and add more lemon pepper seasoning than it calls for. Very easy and delicious!"
"Oops. *meal --- lol."
"Fantastic! Such a simple mean, yet delicious and filling. I didn't have any lemon pepper seasoning on hand, so I made my own with freshly cracked pepper and lemon juice straight from the lemon. It was flavorful and delicious. I chose whole wheat pita, and used fresh spinach instead of the lettuce (and of course the frozen spinach that was cooked.)This is a great, quick, meal. You get your meat (I try to use organic, grass - fed as often as possible) you get some good stuff from the spinach, and if you use a good quality pita, you get the good carbs from the whole grain. This was another big hit at my house. Thanks so much for sharing this recipe. Next time I might try using ground lamb!"
